Bush bliss is what Madikwe Safari Lodge is all about. Serene spaces, luxurious attention to detail and superb game viewing of the Big Five in unspoilt surroundings, it has all you’d expect of a luxury African safari and more, and is easily accessible from Johannesburg by plane or car. This private lodge in South Africa’s malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve has been designed as three separate luxury lodges, the intimate Kopano for couples, family friendly Lelapa and secluded, exclusive use Dithaba, so that all guests can enjoy the legendary More family hospitality at its best.

Kopano & Dithaba now guarantees a maximum of 6 guests per vehicle.

For privacy and romance, the luxury of Kopano’s four suites with their high thatched ceilings, open fireplace, big double beds and beautifully designed bathrooms are amazing.

Take in the views over the Madikwe plains from your private plunge pool and outdoor shower, enjoy a massage on your deck or cosy up on the sofa by the fire in winter. Families with kids enjoy the same levels of luxury at 12 suite Lelapa, with the addition of a bright and cheerful kids’ room complete with bunk beds and toys in the two family suites. The seclusion of Dithaba, higher up the mountain offers panoramic views from its four incredibly spacious suites all of which share the same feeling of serenity and calm and home from home welcome that pervades the whole lodge. The newly completed treehouse offers the extra option of sleeping out under the stars to experience the call of the wild and get even closer to nature.

Morning and evening game drives explore the uncrowded expanses of Madikwe Game Reserve, where knowledgeable guides discover the best sightings, from elephant, lion, zebra and giraffe to leopard and the rare wild dogs that Madikwe is renowned for. Family drives accommodate children aged between 2 and 6 mid-morning and there is a whole host of enthralling activities for the children both outdoors and at the Eco house. Sumptuous meals are a delight whether under the stars at the Boma or in the elegant dining rooms. Every moment at Madikwe Safari Lodge is both magical and memorable, for an authentic African safari in superb style.
